My friend Lisa brought treats to a church activity recently. She is a wiz in the kitchen, so I wasn't surprised to find out that the most amazing homemade caramel sauce I have ever tasted was hers. She told me how easy it was and shared her recipe...and said I can share it with you! Hooray!
So to kick off my fall baking, this Homemade Caramel Sauce seemed like the perfect thing. It's something simple that you can add to pretty much any of your other fall baking to make it even more amazing. Think of the possibilities!
No, really. You should think about it. Or maybe do an image search for "caramel desserts." Actually, don't do that. That's way too dangerous! Of course, you have the classic apple slices dipped in caramel (or other snack foods... graham crackers, pretzel sticks, marshmallows, fingers...). You could add it to hot apple cider, or hot chocolate, or really any other hot drink that it'll melt into. Drizzle it over plain vanilla ice cream, or add a few sliced bananas for a real treat! Caramel brownies, caramel cake, caramel frosting, caramel cheesecake, caramel ice cream, caramel puddings, caramel shortbread cookies, caramel rice crispy treats, caramel apple pie. I could go on all day! That caramel apple pie though... Yeah- I'll be posting a recipe for that next week! Yay! :)
